MADISON (WKOW) -- UW-Madison doctors will keep seeing Physicians Plus patients for the next couple years.
The two organizations signed a contract Friday to end the lawsuit between them.
The UW medical foundation had said it would stop treating Physicians Plus members because the insurance company wouldn't agree to new fees. However, Physicians Plus said the fees were too high and sued, saying the medical foundation couldn't cut off access.
A judge ruled last month that the doctor group's threat was legal, but Physicians Plus appealed.
The contract signed on Friday extends the medical foundation's agreement to see Physicians Plus members through the end of 2015.
Another lawsuit by the medical foundation against Meriter over night coverage for some patients is still pending.
